"Hazards and Blind Spots" - Oil Paintings

This is a series of surrealist ‘landscapes,’ in oils. I am depicting unanticipated blind spots and hazards one must encounter on one’s odyssey and the need to take the occasional risk or to venture outside the prescribed path.

I use a variety of techniques and have sometimes launched from familiar works by innovative and surrealist artists like Van Gogh or Winslow Homer, amping up the energy or emphasizing the ways in which these artists distanced themselves from the conventional – a move I am in fact encouraging in my audience through the series.
